Goddess of Home & Hearth
A lovely art sculpture that shows off all of Brigid's many talents through symbols. With flowing red hair and wearing a circlet, Brigid stands in front of a glowing hearth. She wears a long green dress accented with gold-yellow embroidery and belt bearing the Celtic Triskele. She holds her flame over the Celtic Cauldron, accented with Brigid's Cross, welcoming all who seek the Divine.
The Celtic Goddess Brigid is the female heart of Ireland, though Her worship spread far beyond its borders. Her presence is felt and still worshiped at Her sacred wells, and at Kildare where an eternal flame still burns in Brigit's honor and is still quietly attended by eighteen maidens. The Catholic Church made her a saint due to her fervent worshippers, who accepted Christ, but could not endorse a religion that excluded her. Other names/spellings: Brigit, Brighid, Brigid, Bride, Breed, Birdie, Brigantia, Brittania, and St. Brigit. February 2nd, known as Imbolc, is sacred to Brigid, as February 1st is the sacred day of St. Brigit.
She stands 9 1/2 inches tall. Crafted of Polystone and is handpainted.
